About Yuyao

Yuyao is a half-hometown for me. In that year, my grandfather carried his luggage and came to Shanghai to make a living from the small village by the sea. Since then, his hometown has been a strange land. Everything that happened in his hometown was inevitably sealed and darkened in the background. There is always something approaching in life, and it cannot be crossed. And those stories about his hometown can only be heard from the grandmother's mouth. I also went back a few times with my cousin in the middle, and that was just just going back and going in a hurry. I was more like a passenger. The scenic spots that followed the Yuyao Tourism Bureau in this order were Siming Mountain Geopark, Tea Garden at the Source of Yao River, Shilin Ancient Village, and Chishui of Danshan. Learned about Yuyao from all aspects.

Yuyao is located at 121 degrees east longitude and 30 degrees north latitude. It is located on the south wing of the beautiful and prosperous Yangtze River Delta, adjacent to Jiangbei District and Yinzhou District of Ningbo City in the east, Siming Mountain in the south, bordering Fenghua and Luzhou in the west, Shangyu City in the west, Cixi City in the north, Qiantang River and Hangzhou Bay in the northwest. The centerline borders Haiyan County.

Yuyao belongs to the area where the eastern Zhejiang Basin intersects with the northern Zhejiang Plain. The terrain is high in the south and low in the north, with a slight depression in the middle. In the south is the Siming Mountains, with undulating hills and scattered terraces and valleys of different sizes. In the middle is the alluvial valley plain of the Yaojiang River, with arc hills and hills dotted on both sides. In the north is the Qiantang River and Hangzhou Bay alluvial plain. The main river, Yaojiang, originates from the Xiajialing Mountains of the Siming Mountains in the territory, flows from west to east through the middle, merges into the Minjiang River in Ningbo, and reaches the sea, with a total length of 109 kilometers.

Yuyao's history can be seen in the literature, starting with Yu Shun, and it has successively said "Shun Chong Lishan" and "Yu Tibetan secret map". Yuyao belonged to the Yue Kingdom during the Spring and Autumn Period, and Yuyao became the jurisdiction of Chu Kingdom in the middle of the Warring States Period. Yuyao Qin Shizhi County has a county history of more than 2,200 years. To this day, the original lane and lane pattern, street scale, and river network system in Yuyao City are still quite well preserved, and they form a relatively complete ancient city style with the residential buildings.

Yuyao has a long history and splendid culture. It is a famous historical and cultural city in Zhejiang Province. The Hemudu site, which is regarded as a miracle by Chinese and foreign historians, has a history of more than 7,000 years. It is a representative site of the matriarchal prosperity of the Yangtze River Basin. Since the Qin Dynasty, many historical and cultural celebrities have emerged, such as Yan Ziling in the Fengfeng Festival in the Eastern Han Dynasty, Wang Yangming, a famous philosopher in the Ming Dynasty, Huang Zongxi, a famous scholar in the late Ming and early Qing dynasties, Zhu Shunshui, a messenger of Sino-Japanese culture, and a famous contemporary scholar, Yu Qiuyu As a result, Yuyao enjoys the reputations of "Yaojiang People Are the World", "Most Famous Cities in the Southeast", and "Documentary States".

Banquet at Xie Ge's Hometown, Simen

The Simenge hometown banquet was formed in the middle of the Ming Dynasty, and it was said that it was personally formulated by the Xie Qiansuo, a veteran of the Four Dynasties and a relative of the Three Dynasties.

In the first year of Ming Zhengde, Xie Qian asked Li Quan to sacrifice Liu Jin, but he was forced to return to his hometown of Simen. In order to avoid disasters, Xie Qian Dumen was in a remote place, and he was very sophisticated, but he was old and young in Fengshan and Fenglan. At this time, the hometown banquet is an ordinary wine banquet, which is generally called four plates, eight bowls, ten bowls, and at most twelve bowls. The four dishes are stir-fried and cold dishes. The eight bowls to twelve bowls are mainly stewed and cooked, and the main ingredients are chicken, duck, fish, and vegetables. Among them, ten bowls are to be discussed as the "best of ten".

In Zhengde for five years, Liu Jin lost his power and Xie Qianmeng returned to office. Usually in front of the old mansion of Menko Luoque, it was lively again. Officials, relatives, and friends who were afraid to be contacted because of fear of being implicated once again shuttled on Wan'an Bridge every day. In order to entertain these guests, Xie Qiansui improved and innovated the original ordinary family banquet, featuring the local seafood products of Simen. According to the number of cold dishes and hot dishes and the number of dishes, the quality of the dishes was high and low, forming the "Eighth Round" The "twelve encircles", "sixteen encircles" and even the "twenty-four encircles" have a complete feast system, which the later generations called "Golden House Banquet" has a history of more than 100 years.

In ancient times, there were bands playing under the corridor, and the band played as long as the feast lasted, so folks also called "twenty-four encirclement" to eat "blowing wine". Under normal circumstances, the "twenty-four sieges" are to be eaten from noon to the evening, and people who do not have a certain degree of merit can not persist for so long.

It is an indispensable step to savour fragrant rice dumplings before meals.

This time, following the Yuyao Tourism Bureau to go to the Simen Hotel to taste the "Sixteen Encirclements" of the House of Feast. There are sixteen cold dishes, sixteen cold mixes, sixteen hot dishes, and four snacks.

Four fruits: tangerine, kiwi, dragon fruit

Four mixed vegetables: mustard

Four Mixed Vegetables: Mixed Artemisia

Four seafood: white jade crab

Four seafood: grandma smoked fish

Four seafood, salt fried river prawns

Four dishes: savory catfish

Four dishes: red soup turtle

Four dishes: snow cabbage plum fish

Four dishes: plain chicken

Braised Paddling

Buckle ham, one of the four buckle bowls

Buckle scallop

Four soup dishes

Four Season Vegetables

After Xie Qian's death, ancestral home feasts such as the "Sixteen Encounters" were passed down by future generations, and were used to celebrate the Xie clan's weddings, birthdays, housewarming, and further studies, and gradually spread to the neighboring clan. The "twenty-four siege" was nearly lost due to the cumbersome ingredients and lengthy feast time. Now the Simen Hotel reopens the "twenty-four siege" to inherit this cultural feast. Those who are interested can go to Simen Hotel in Yuyao for a taste.

Local opera-Yao opera

The Yao opera, formerly known as "Yuyao Beach Spring", is a type of local opera of the Han nationality that is popular in Yuyao, Cixi, and Shangyu in Zhejiang. After 1950 it was named Yao Opera. The Yao opera was developed on the basis of the local Han folk songs and dances such as "horse lantern", "dry boat", "tea-picking basket" and "Cui Dongdong". Therefore, in Yuyao area, Yao opera is also known as "Dan Opera" and "Danban".

A scholar from the city, Mr. Yao Yexin, introduced in his book "Mingyi Yuyao": Yao Tan has gradually developed from folk song and dance and rap to folk drama, commonly known as "Lanban", or "Lan Opera". "Lantern operas" were mostly performed during the Lantern Festival and later developed into other festival activities.

Yao Tan's vocal tone is simple and beautiful, with a lively rhythm and rich rustic flavor. It consists of two parts: basic and minor. Basic tuning is commonly used "flat four" and "tight board".

Another type of Yao opera is a minor, with a total of more than 40 songs, either for Jiangnan folk songs or Ming and Qing dynasties. "Send", "Five More Tuning", etc., the mellow tone, light rhythm, both elegant and popular, and rich in rustic flavor.

[Big BRIC · Thai Temple Fright]

Most of the Yaotan artists are farmers and craftsmen, such as painters, masons, plasterers, palm sheds, etc., and they work in groups during the off-season. Yao Tan's props are also very simple. A handkerchief and a fan can appear on the stage. As for the three plays I watch, almost only one or two or three actors can support a play, which is rare in other operas.

[Tear Field, Cave]

[Ge Gelan Qier]

The repertoire of the Yao drama at the Longshan Theater that night included: "Big BRIC · The Shock of the Taimiao Temple", "The Tears of the Sand Fields", "Granger", "The Bandit and the Nun", etc. Due to time constraints, we only enjoyed a few of these operas. If we have the opportunity to come to Yuyao again, we must enjoy the Yao opera from beginning to end.

Siming Mountain, Jiguang Pianyu of Tang Poetry Road

It is not easy to describe the beauty of a mountain. The mountains have different beauty because of the different seasons. The poets of the Tang Dynasty seem to particularly like Siming Mountain and Ningbo Earth. King Luo Bin, Li Bai, Du Fu, Liu Yuxi, Yuan Zhen ... From the early Tang Dynasty to the late Tang Dynasty, more than 160 poets wrote about the land of Ningbo, which is dominated by Siming Mountain. Siming Mountain thus became an important part of the "Tang Poetry Road". After traveling to Siming Mountain, Li Bai wrote the magnificent "Looking at the Sea Xiabian Early": "Three thousand miles in the Ming Dynasty, facing Chichengxia. The red light scattered at sunrise, and the light shone on the cliff. Inward Sands. Where to raise your hand, Qinglong Baihuche. "

Meng Jiao also described the beauty of Siming Mountain in "Sending Xiao Lianshi to Siming Mountain": "Chihiro Zhifeng Peak, a hundred-foot inverted diarrhea spring. Mi Xue is my meal, and Baiyun is my field."

Among these poets who describe Siming Mountain, the most amazing are Lu Guimeng and Pi Rixiu. Although they have not been to Siming Mountain, they have composed "Nine Siming Mountains Poems" decently.

What's more interesting is that a series of Siming Mountain poems by Yao Kun in the Qing Dynasty and Qing Dynasty almost coincided with the Siming Mountain tourist route in Zhangshui Town, Yinzhou District. It was said that he took refuge in the Minjiang River during the Opium War, and his friends visited the Siming Mountain. According to the poems he wrote, he entered from the Minjiang River and passed through Zhangcun, Miyan, Changshatan, Songyan Temple and other places.

Siming Lake, at the entrance of Siming Mountain, is a good place for locals to have fun on holidays. This lake is twice as large as Hangzhou West Lake. The islands in the lake are dotted with mountains and mountains, and there are many historic sites around the lake.

There are five small islands in the lake, including the Bazi Bridge, Wild Cat Bay, and Dingshan, forming five lake islands, as if emerald inlaid in a mirror, adding the charm of Siming Lake.

Our car drove along the Panshan Kilometer Mountain. After a while, the panoramic view of Siming Mountain was imprinted into the eye-catching, hazy distant mountains, shrouded in a layer of veil, shadows and shadows, flickering in the misty clouds, if they were leaving. It's like a few strokes of light ink, wiped on the blue sky.

Simingshan National Forest Park is located in the five urban areas of Yuyao, Luzhou, Fenghua, Luzhou, and Shangyu in the hinterland of the Siming Mountains in the eastern part of Zhejiang Province. Mainly in Simingshan Town, Yuyao City. The mountains in the park are vertical and horizontal, with a gentle top and a steep slope. Naturally, there are many streams and waterfalls, which are the source of the three rivers of the Minjiang, Cao'e and Fenghua rivers. The forest park is divided into 7 scenic spots, including Yangtian Lake, Shanglianggang, Shenxiu Valley, Huang Zongxi Memorial Hall, Xiuyan Shuilian Cave, Siming Mountain Resort, and Farmhouse Garden.

Jasper Lake is a scenic spot in Simingshan Geopark. The geological park in Simingshan Forest Park contains rich landscapes from the platform to the canyon, and is one of the best areas to reflect the causes of the alpine wetlands, springs, waterfalls, granite landscapes, and canyon landscapes in Zhejiang Province.

After passing through Jade Lake, go down the mountain from the sheep intestine trail, and there are large and small rock groups of different shapes on both sides of the road. The main rock that constitutes this place is granite about 100 million years ago (mid-Cretaceous), and the top of the granite is a weathered crust of sandy soil formed in the Miocene (23 million to 5.33 million years ago). It is about 650 meters high. The granite weathered crust is covered with dark gray Miocene-Pliocene (5.3 million to 1.8 million years ago) basalt. The top of the basalt is a weathered clay weathering crust since the Pliocene.

"Xiaoyan" is named for its shape like a magpie. The bird's body is a boulder, about 3 meters high and about 10 meters long. On this boulder, there is another big stone forming the bird's head, which looks wonderful.

As I walked, I looked up and saw that there were basalts ranging in height of about five or six meters above the mountain road, and I saw layers stacked and stood along the top of the mountain.

As they walked, Wuyun pressed over again, mimicking the rhythm of Foshan's Yuyu, before pressing the shutter before exiting the park gate. Here is one scene at a time, one scene at a time, one wonder at a time, one wonder at a time, the Siming Mountains are full of poems, paintings, dreams, drunks ...

[Zhedong Anti-Japanese Base Site Site]

The site of the eastern Zhejiang anti-Japanese base is located in Hengkantou Village, Liangnong Town. The East Zhejiang Revolution Base, centered on Siming Mountain, was one of the nineteen liberated areas in the country during the Anti-Japanese War and one of the seven guerrilla war bases in the South during the liberation war.

The former site of the Party Committee of East Zhejiang is located in Hengkantou Village between Qingshan and Bingshui. It was a wooden house in the Qing Dynasty. There are seven main buildings to the east of the South Chamber, and north buildings to the west.

The courtyard is in front of the main building, and the floor is tiled with staggered seams. In front of the courtyard is a tall fence.

Dalan, the tea mirror at the source of Yao Jiang

In Lin Huiyin's eyes, April is a cloud in a dry field, a tree-by-tree flower. In my eyes, April Sky is the hazy tea mountain, and it is the counterpart to tea in the rain. Yuyao's good tea is in Dalan, and Dalan's good tea is at the source of Yaojiang.

The source of Yao Jiang is located in Sifeng Village, Dalan Town. Sifeng was originally called "Four Peaks" and was named because of four mountain peaks around the village. The average altitude here is 550 meters, surrounded by mountains, green forests, and acres of tea gardens looming. It is one of the birthplaces of the three major river systems of Yaojiang, Cao'ejiang and Fenghuajiang. Whenever the water and gas are sufficient, the clouds are dazzling, and people enter into it, still feeling like a fairyland on earth.

From a distance, the cascading tea gardens seem to be undulating with the mountains.

Closer look, the sprouts from a pile of green tea trees are like beating notes. The vibrant greenness, the lingering tea fragrance, seems to make people immersed in a thick spring, forgetting time and space and troubles.

Although the tea is delicious, the old tea farmers are always busy. They carried small bamboo baskets, bowed their backs to work in the tea garden, their faces were covered with vicissitudes, and they even looked up when picking tea.

This is the tea leaves being fried in the tea factory

After half a year's rest in the tea tree, the tea tree is plump, the color is green, and the leaves are soft. Maybe it's the source of Yaojiang.It also has the advantages of climate and geology, which makes Dalan's tea famous.It tastes sweet and full of tea.It has to sigh that Dalan's good tea is really intoxicating. very.

Magang Cherry Blossom

This spring, if you haven't enjoyed the cherry blossoms well, you might as well go to Dalang Magang, Yuyao, where there are about 2,000 acres of cherry blossoms. Every March and April, the cherry blossoms open for the second time.

The early cherry blossoms have fallen in April, but the late cherry blossoms on Magang are racing to open. The flowers are large and full, the petals are heavy and dense, and the clusters of cherry blossoms are covered with branches. The wind blows, the cherry blossoms fall like rain, and the flowers are colorful.

Because of the cold spring in early spring this year, the garden has not been fully opened, but it is still another scene scattered in bloom.

Shilin Village: One family with one surname

Shilin Village is located in the village under the jurisdiction of Dalan Town, Yuyao City. It is located between the ninth Dongtian of the Taoist Holy Land, surrounded by mountains and surrounded by bamboo and forest trees. According to the elderly in the village, the village was once known as "Shilin" and "Mengling", and now it is named "Persimmon Forest" because of the persimmon tree planted in the mountains. Shilin Village is surrounded by mountains on all sides, full of green bamboo forests, not only beautiful landscapes, but also primitive and quaint, the original appearance of the mountain homes remains intact.

It is conceivable that if you come here in the season when the persimmons are ripe, it must be a booming mountain.

The big tree at the ancient village mouth is said to be 800 years old.

One day 650 years ago, the top of Dalan Mountain ushered in three hurried figures, and they are destined to change the history here. This is Shen Tailong and his wife and son. According to legend, Tailonggong is particularly fond of landscapes. His travels are all over Tiantai Mountain, Xuedou Temple, Four Window Rock and other places. One year in the fall and winter, he went over the mountains with a rice bag on his back and continued to look for a better place. When swimming in the red waters of Danshan, he was dumped by the beautiful scenery in front of him. In order to reduce the burden, he hung the rice bag on a small tree and continued his journey. When I took off the rice bag to prepare for dinner at noon, I found that the rice bag still had some temperature.Tai Longgong decided that this was a good place, and dug it around the small tree. well. So he took his wife and son to set up a few thatched cottages by the well, and gradually became a party.

Dried bamboo shoots in the farm yard

Mottled stone walls, with moss and weeds, seem to silently tell the passage of time.

It is said that nearly one thousand residents living here are all surnamed Shen, descendants of Shen Kuo, a famous scientist in the Northern Song Dynasty. Known as a village, a well, a surname. It is said that the CCTV documentary "One Hundred Family Names" Shen also came here to take pictures.

Walking around the ancient village, the houses in front of them are made of stone walls, and the roads are paved with stones. It is a feeling to travel to a long past. The combination of simple folk customs, traditional lifestyles, quaint architecture, and literary accents makes the Shilin Ancient Village more and more attractive.

[Chishui Danshan] The ninth cave day of self-cultivation

The magic of Shilin Village is actually not in the forest of persimmons, but it is located in the ninth cave of Taoism-Danshan Chishui. Its most intriguing color is not the red of persimmon or even the red of danshi, but the white of the misty god Yunxian mist covering the mountain here.

Cliff Cliff Carvings

As early as the Eastern Han Dynasty, there were many Taoist celebrities who came to live in seclusion for self-cultivation, and were revered by the Taoists as the ninth cave day of the thirty-sixth cave day. Song Huizong once wrote "Danshan Chishui cave day". Many celebrities of all ages came to this Range Rover to express their feelings, leaving many beautiful poems. The Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai had the chant of "Four Mings and Three Thousands of Miles, Arise from Chichengxia", and the Ming Dynasty poets also had "Danshan Chishui Shenxian House, cloth socks and blue shoes as a victory tour". Shen Tailong, the first ancestor of Shilin Village, once praised Shilin: "The hole in the heavens is very beautiful, and it doesn't stain the earth, so the aristocrats choose to live here, but only Baiyun comes to Lingtou."

The more you go deeper, the more you feel like a fairyland. It is no wonder that the legendary story of the fairy ascension in history and the "Danshan Chishui" cliffs complement each other. The legend of the Danshan Chishui cave heaven is shrouded in this area. Imagine.

The fusion of mountains and water is a combination of quietness and movement. The combination of monotony and wonderfulness forms the most beautiful scenery.

The Shilin Village faces the deep Chishuixi Gorge, and the surrounding mountains are connected. The village is located almost in the center of the mountains. Here the hills are covered with various rhododendrons, ridge-head cherry black tea green, autumn red persimmon weeping fruits, ginkgo golden, beautiful.
